Dams, Dikes, and Levees

The structural integrity of our flood protection infrastructure is a critical public safety issue. Fuss & O’Neill’s structural engineers inspect, replace, and remove aging systems, and design new structures, to protect and strengthen the resilience of communities.

Fuss & O’Neill’s structural engineers work with municipalities, private owners, state regulatory agencies, and environmental groups to ensure the stability, strength, and capacity of dams, dikes, and levees. We craft tailored design solutions that are respectful of budgets, project goals, and environmental impact.

Working in the Northeast, we have experience with historic dam restoration and understand the sensitivity of preserving traditional masonry while providing structural improvements. To streamline the design, permitting, and construction process, our structural engineers collaborate with our geotechnical, resilience, and water and natural resource professionals to provide holistic solutions that are environmentally-protective and to ensure that our infrastructure is resilient and meets the needs of today and well into the future.
